Antibiotic Resistance

Last month President Barack Obama signed an executive order intended to address the problem of growing resistance to antibiotic drugs in people and to study the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture.

In related news, antibiotics, hormones, and other animal husbandry practices were discussed at a recent “Food Dialogues” session in Austin, Texas. As reported in Texas Agriculture, October 3, 2014, participants included ranchers, farmers, academics, and consumers. These dialogues are sponsored by the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance and Texas Farm Bureau.
